The Best Woodworking Tool To Buy For Beginners

Updated: Sep 12

Beginner DIY Tool

1. Dewalt Miter Saw

This is my #1 Tool To Buy if you are a beginner woodworker or DIYer. The Dewalt Single Bevel Compound 12 inch Miter Saw is my choice. I prefer the Dewalt brand to get your foot in the door to cutting wood safely and the price won't break the bank. I know there are better an more expensive brands out there but I use this one daily.

2. Safety

Lets talk about safety. The Miter Saw is safe up to the point when you touch the blade. Which I recommend you not do unless the power is removed from tool. It comes with all the needed guards. Me nor my wife have ever been injured using a Miter Saw. We have also never had a kickback which is common when using a Circular Saw.

3. Mounting

I recommend mounting it to a bench or table. This can be done with screws or nails. There are premade Miter Saw Tables you can purchase to attach your Miter Saw to. I like the idea of a table but personally I have never used one, we always used two saw horse and boards. Check out a Miter Table click the picture.

If you are a beginner and wanting to make that first purchase, the Miter Saw is a necessity. My wife uses ours daily and loves it. As always be safe in everything you do and Do not forget the PPE. Check out my other blog post on Thanks for stopping by.
